Good for research, unconveinent for living
Research Assistant - Department of Geosciences (Current Employee), Stony Brook, NYNovember 21, 2012
Located on Long Island, Stony Brook University (SBU) is somewhat isolated. But for research, SBU has strong relationship with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and Brookhaven National Laboratory.

Excellent University
Student (Former Employee), 100 Nicolls Road Stony Brook, NY 11794October 16, 2012
Pros: excellent education at a low cost.

One of the best universities in the world available at an extremely reasonable cost, it is difficult to beat the quality of education you get at Stony Brook for the price it costs.

Excellent place to work
Office Assistant- Student Orientation (Former Employee), Stony Brook, NYSeptember 14, 2012
Pros: very fun work environment
One of my favorite places to work. The staff was really cool, and the job allowed me to meet various department heads which was good school-wise. Pay was also above minimum wage and we got school vacation days off. Coworkers were awesome so was the management. I was able to get a couple other jobs from this job as well. Definitely worth being an orientation – more... leader. – less

Great opportunity
Teacher's Aide (Former Employee), Stony Brook, NYSeptember 3, 2012
Pros: experience in the classroom and experience designing curriculum.
Cons: it was not a job, it was just for college credit.
I worked with one of my college teachers to design a curriculum based on the field of Eco-aesthetics. I worked for internship and independent research credit. I helped him in the classroom present lectures and assist students during projects and classwork. I learned how to organize lessons for class and how to deliver information efficiently.

Great learning stage for the engineering world as a intern.
Intern (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 23, 2012
A typical day at work was learning besides graduate students towards their Ph.D. I helped research and build an antenna for RFID testing. Management was a bit tough since the professor was doing research on his own, so he wasn't around that often. Most of the contact was thru email, but it was very helpful having a few graduate students in the room – more... as well that were familiar with the software and equipment in the laboratory. The most enjoyable part was learning was learning equipment, gaining work experience and seeing the process of what graduate school is all about. – less

Challenging & enjoyable role
Instructional support assistant (Current Employee), Stony Brook, NYJune 15, 2012
Pros: it's not a full time position and gives flexability to your schedule.
Cons: it's not a full time position.
Helping someone better themselves and becoming Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s).

You could easily get lost in Stony Brook, but the staff are always helpful and management helps make the tasks at hand fun.

Hardest part of the job is graduation.

Best parts of the job, seeing students become support trainers.

Clinical Year during the Radiologic Technology Program
Radiologic Technology Student (Former Employee), Stony Brook, NYJune 4, 2012
I was an undergraduate student in this program. I completed all my competencies. Stony Brook University Medical Center was one of my rotations, and its quite busy there. Their Emergency Department use the newer digital Siemens xray equipment, and it is amazing. It is a level one trauma center, so things could get hectic there.
